MagicCon 5 | Vortrag | Voldemort vs. Grindelwald | Sina & Julia

What makes evil evil? There are many answers to this question in various fandoms. We compared the two villains from the wizarding world of Harry Potter, Voldemort and Grindelwald, to get to the bottom of this question.

Among other things, we compared their motives, their motivations and their behavior. The result was that, although they are set in the same world and were created by the same author, they couldn’t be much more different. Why, for example, did Voldemort not allow himself to be named Minister of Magic, while Grindelwald aspires to open positions of power? Dumbledore’s relationship with the two couldn’t be more opposite either, but what effect does that have on character building and how he is portrayed?

We look forward to sharing our answers to these and many more questions with you and hearing your thoughts.

Lecturer: Sina, Julia
Duration: 60 min  -  The Lecture will be held in: german
Sina and Julia are two Ravenclaw sisters. They both developed a great love for fantasy at a very early age. They then lost their hearts hopelessly to Harry Potter.

The fact of being sisters has many advantages here. Among them is not only access to twice the amount of books (which, when they moved out, meant that the two of them now own four editions of the Harry Potter series together), but also the opportunity to carry out a wide variety of projects. These include memorizing the "Sorting Hat" songs, prophecies and sayings from the Harry Potter books, listing and sorting all known spells from the universe, and turning the basement into a paradise for all fantasy nerds.

The biggest project so far is a complete family tree of the Harry Potter world. In the Muggle world, Sina and Julia are studying Chemistry and International Relations.
